Mr. Woolsey is right about a one thing; there is indeed a distinction between the two major political parties. I always love reading something that resembles a stump speech written for Tom Delay.
You know what I’m talking about, right?
Well, let’s review what Mr. Woolsey actually claimed in the attempt to distinguish his party of moral superiority from my party that, according to Mr. Woolsey, is drawn towards atheism. Talk about politics being a game.
First, he offers the archaic jargon that Democrats want to raise taxes while Republicans are for protecting the common folk from the overbearing government. Yeah, that sounds about right when you look at where the president’s tax cut actually went. Check it out sometime.
Secondly, Mr. Woolsey claims that we are attacking the institution of marriage. Another gem from the Rush Limbaugh handbook on how to attack people who aren’t really attacking you. You see Mr. Woolsey, Democrats believe that equality applies to everyone, not just those your party deems fit to be married. The Supreme Court that you call “activist” when it comes to striking down the sodomy laws is the same “activist” court that gave Bush the White House in 2000. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you Mr. Woolsey.
Finally, the Democratic Party is not assaulting the religious freedoms of people in this country. We are simply protecting government from the grasp of religion, which is sort of why people moved here from England. It’s also why so many people died in something called the American Revolution: freedom
Mr. Woolsey, it is not a game, and your attempt to trivialize it is shameful.
The Ten Commandments belong in your room, your home, your heart, but putting them in a courtroom defeats the very spirit of this country.
Mr. Woolsey favors a police state, but I favor freedom of religion without persecution from one particular entity that holds itself higher than other belief systems.
Go on ahead and call yourself conservative if it makes you feel better, or it fills you with pride to do so. I don’t need a label Mr. Woolsey, I’m an American.
Oh by the way, all lawyers are overpaid, not just the ones that work to protect civil liberties at the ACLU.
